I don't think it makes sense to single out gcc 4.x, since there are
lots of other compilers, and the answers may be different for each x.
I *do* think it would make sense if there were a prominent section
called, "What works on my compiler?" that has some preliminary
explanation and a link to:

suitably adjusted for 1.34, of course. I will definitely cover this
in my talk, thanks!
